The Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players who scored 1,500 points or more in 17 straight seasons. For sports analyst Skip Bayless, this achievement speaks more about LeBron’s durability and longevity.

Bayless played down James’ achievement by comparing his scoring to Michael Jordan who played 11 seasons for the Chicago Bulls.

“Let’s provide context. Jordan’s worst season of points scored was 2,313 in his rookie year. Only one time did LeBron eclipse that number, and that came in 2006 when he scored his career-high,” Bayless said on UNDISPUTED.
